Slowcooker Beef & Guinness Stew

Hello everyone! Slowcooker Beef & Guinness Stew for you today! A delicious simple slow cooker dish. A warm hug in a bowl. Soft melt in the mouth beef in a rich beefy stew loaded with veggies!

This is such a delicious dish that takes little to no effort at all! Throw it all into your slow cooker and relax! If you would like to add some potatoes into this beef stew definitely do! I prefer mine with creamy, butter mash made on the side but you do whatever you love! You can also change up the veggie to anything you like or even add barley!

I used stewing beef in this recipe as it has so much more flavour than steak pieces. The stewing beef ends up deliciously soft and melt in the mouth in the few hours in the slow cooker. You can cook this on high for 4 hours or alternatively 8 hours on high, whatever suits you. If you don’t want to use Guinness just replace it with extra beef stock.
